Pretty Little Liars’ Sara Shepard on Her Latest Adult Thriller

in Thrillers by

One of the books at the top of our must-read list for this year was The Elizas (Atria Books), which just seemed to have every element you want out of a thriller: a narrator who isn’t quite sure what’s going on but whom no one will believe; a case of identity confusion; a beautiful location; and last, but perhaps most important, a writer who really knows what she’s doing. Sara Shepard has a talent for writing some of the most complex and layered plots to ever hit the page, but she does so with what seems like little to no effort, and manages to explain everything out in the end in a way that has you berating yourself for not seeing it before.…

The Pretty Little Liars Finale was Epic — And We’re Ready for More!

in Fiction by

Warning, spoilers ahead about the Pretty Little Liars series finale! Pretty Little Liars officially ended last night, and we are not OK. The finale was as crazy as ever (maybe even crazier), with reveals and revelations, evil twins (!!), pregnancies and so much more. Honestly, this show has always been kind of nuts, and that’s exactly why we’re going to miss it so much. Based on the bestselling book series by Sara Shepard, Pretty Little Liars ran on Freeform (formally ABC Family) for seven seasons, garnering a cult following that has been devoted to the twisty teen show since the first episode. It’s not hard to see why. With all the secrets, lies, and murder, PLL never tried to be…

Must Watch: ABC Family and its Lineup of Underrated TV Shows

in Fiction by

When did ABC Family (soon to be Freeform) become the go-to channel for cutting-edge dramas? From pregnancies to foster families to abandoned kids, every show seems to be pushing as many boundaries as it can. But somehow the channel still seems to fly under the radar. Sure, they have a few shows that became overly popular—like Pretty Little Liars, or The Secret Life of the American Teenager—but most of their programs never really hit it big in mainstream media. Which is a shame, as they have some of the best, most heartfelt programs on TV. In order to raise awareness, here are three underrated ABC Family gems (and one book!) that you should definitely be binging: The Fosters   If you…

[SPOILER] is Finally Revealed as ‘A’: Pretty Little Liars Recap, Complete with Feels!

in Fiction by

After five agonizing years of trying to guess who ‘A’ is, we finally know the truth. Yes, the real truth, the whole truth and nothing but the TRUTH. I was skeptical at first– how many times have the Pretty Little Liars fans been told “A WILL BE REVEALED” in this promo, or that promo, by actors and even the creator herself? Definitely too many times to count. But, last night, on the summer finale of PLL we came #FAceToFace with ‘A.’ If you haven’t seen the new episode, leave now. Like really, close out this window and run in the other direction. I can not be held responsible if you haven’t caught up on this guilty pleasure. Okay, now that…

Pretty Little Liars A New Universe In The Kindle Worlds

in Fiction by

Some folks think of fan fiction as only for the geek at heart and sci-fi aficionados, but I’m here to tell you that playing in a universe that you didn’t create can be a real interesting trip! I’ve written several novels now, but I’d never dipped my toe in the fan fiction waters. That is until I was given the chance to be a part of the new Kindle Worlds. When I heard Pretty Little Liars was one of the chosen universes I was excited to jump in. I wrote three short episodes in the Pretty Little Liars world for the launch, and I’m looking forward to continuing those stories. The writing process was different, and not only from a…
